Customers can contract for unbundled distribution services provided they meet all the eligibility requirements of the EGD delivery zone contract rate class. The size of your operation or volume of use will determine the rate class you will qualify for.

Customers with contract rate service have specific parameters for daily, hourly and annual (if applicable) natural gas use, as well as for the minimum guaranteed pressure of the natural gas delivered during the term of the contract.

Unbundled customers have the flexibility to contract for the services they need. Customers are required to take the responsibility for their natural gas purchases and the daily management between natural gas deliveries to Enbridge Gas and the natural gas consumption at their facility. The service you choose will determine the type of contract(s) you will sign with Enbridge Gas.
